I’m participating in BE.BOP 2012- BLACK EUROPE BODY POLITICS, an international screening program and transdisciplinary roundtable on Black European citizenship in connection to recent moving image and performative practices. My presentation is on race, sisterhood and citizenship.
BE.BOP 2012 aims at facilitating a long-term exchange between specialists and time-based art practitioners of different contexts and backgrounds of the Black European Diaspora. The idea is to create dialogues across several fields such as history, legal studies, art and political activism etc. The transdisciplinary roundtable will be accompanied by a screening program and its content will be published in the form of a book, creating a visible platform that will contribute to current debates on global citizenship.
The event is curated by author and critic Alanna Lockward in collaboration with Allianz Kulturstiftung and Ballhaus Naunynstrasse. Participants are:
Ndèye Andújar (Spain) / José Manuel Barreto (England) /Artwell Cain (Holland) Teresa María Díaz Nerio (Holland) / Simmi Dullay (South Africa) / Jeannette Ehlers (Denmark) / Fatima El Tayeb (Germany) / Ylva Habel (Sweden) / Grada Kilomba (Germany) / William Kentridge (South Africa) / Michael Küppers-Adebisi (Germany) / Rozena Maart (South Africa) / Walter Mignolo (United States) /IngridMwangiRobertHutter (Germany) / Minna Salami (England) / Dierk Schmidt (Holland) / Robbie Shilliam (England) / Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung (Germany) / Emeka Udemba (Germany) Rolando Vázquez (Holland)
